Beyond Frustrated

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Okay, I am beyond frustrated! On Tuesday night, I decided to go to chinese. I knew I would retain water which showed on the scale. I jumped up two pounds. I refused to believe that I gained two pounds. For the last two days, I did 60 minutes on the elliptical and stayed close to my range. Today I jumped another TWO pounds. What?! There is no way I gained weight! What is going on?!!

Today I think it is understandable that I am not the most motivated to go to the gym. Why aren't I losing weight?!!!! I know part of the issue is water retention so I will try to work on that.

For now, my boyfriend's mom made french toast so I guess I am having french toast for breakfast...

    First of all, ((((HUGS))))) Put the scale AWAY for a few days. Drink your water. Put some lemon in your water. That will help flush the salt out. It DOES take longer than a few days.

    Good luck and hang in there!!!

    Hugs, prayers, peace.

    I agree, it is probably water weight. I have had this happen a few times, especially when I started lifting weights are changed my workout routine. Keep tracking and working out it will disappear soon.

    I agree with SFREY217... your body is retaining water.
    Cut way back on the salt and remember that it is a process
    not a magic trick.
    Keep watching the calories and do the exercise and you KNOW
    it will happen.

    Don't get discouraged, and don't give up. Your body can retain water for more than a few days. Just keep up you good work and it will eventually leave. Don't ruin all of your hard work by giving up.

    hmmm. don't weigh yourself so often... then you won't notice the fluctuations? two pounds up or down can go really fast, actually. it's within the margin of error.
